Recipe Pumpkin Hash Browns

Pumpkin Hash Browns

The fall season is the perfect time to use the bounty of pumpkins that saturate the market for more than just Jack O’Lanterns! Why not take this delicious squash and turn it into a fun and versatile hash brown? This pumpkin hash brown is perfect for the most cliché dishes, like breakfast, but pairs surprisingly well with savory lunches and dinners too, such as our Turkey Burgers. Try this simple recipe while the season lasts for a unique twist on a classic that the whole family is sure to enjoy.

[ Makes 5-6, 2.5″ hash browns ]

Ingredients

  • 6-8 cups squash or pumpkin, grated
  • 3-4 cups pecorino cheese, grated
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • A pinch of paprika (optional)
  • Olive oil, a drizzle to pan fry
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg with a pinch of salt and the chopped rosemary. Grate in the squash or pumpkin and the pecorino. Mix well until all ingredients are well coated in the egg mixture.
  2. Heat a little olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Spoon in 2 tablespoons of hash brown mixture and flatten. Cook on one side until golden for about 3 minutes, flip and cover for another 2-3 minutes.

TIP: The pecorino cheese will melt very quickly and bind the hash browns. It is important to cover the pan to cook the squash through and prevent the cheese from burning!

 

Recipe Turkey Burgers

As the seasons shift and the weather cools, our natural instinct is to look for comforts like a thick sweater or a rich meal. Even though it becomes far more tempting to laze around and get cozy on your couch, our summer efforts to keep fit shouldn’t be neglected. We have prepared these turkey burgers that are great for satisfying those autumnal cravings while still staying healthy. Naturally lean and high in protein, turkey makes a great alternative to chicken or beef. Add some for your type D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition Protein Blend Powder in the patty to maximize the nutritional value of your burger! Turkey is also good for all types, so it’s a great choice to make for parties! If you are looking for buns for these burgers, try portobello mushroom caps, romaine lettuce leaves, or ezekiel/pure spelt buns.

They also pair beautifully with the  Pumpkin Hash Browns!

TIP: Why not maximize the flavor and health of your patties by adding some beneficial ones for your type? Some good suggestions that work with the flavor profiles are chopped green chili for blood type O & B secretor, or some grated ginger for types A, B, O and AB secretor.

ReMag Lotion. It’s Here!

Daily ReHydrator – Pico-ionic magnesium in a lotion

  • The benefits of ReMag pico-ionic liquid magnesium in a lotion.
  • Daily ReHydrator and cosmetic.
  • Perfect solution for those who would rather not take ReMag orally.
  • 8.1 ounces per bottle
  • 200 mgs ReMag Magnesium Solution per teaspoon of lotion.

Minerals are water’s guidance system in the body. They attract water into the cells and help it stay there to do its work before it’s eliminated from the body, carrying away cellular toxins.

And of all the minerals, magnesium is the master mineral. As an electrolyte, it tells water where to go in the body. One example of this is how lack of magnesium can lead to swelling and edema, which is an over-concentration of water in some areas of the body.

Magnesium supplementation is an excellent way to support hydration in the skin. According to this study out of Kiel, Germany, bathing in a magnesium-rich Dead Sea salt solution improved skin barrier function and enhanced skin hydration in atopic dry skin. The study concluded that “Magnesium salts are known to bind water, influence epidermal proliferation and differentiation, and enhance permeability barrier repair”, all key to healthy, beautiful-looking skin!

#1 – Magnesium Saturation

Although absorption rates vary, magnesium lotion tends to have one of the highest rates of absorption of any form of this mineral. In a study on the cosmetic application of a 31% magnesium chloride solution, it was found that after 12 weeks’ treatment 89% of subjects raised their cellular magnesium levels – with an average increase of 59.7%! Just think how much more improvement will be realized with a 100% pure elemental pico meter magnesium like ReMag blended in a wonderfully luxurious lotion!

Another bonus outcome of this same study is that the patients showed an improvement in their calcium/magnesium ratio, and 78% demonstrated significant evidence of detoxification of heavy metals! How exciting!!!

#2 – Get right to the source

ReMag lotion is an effective way to maintain your flexibility, range of motion, and endurance after a work-out or fitness activity! Regularly apply this lotion after your fitness activities and let us know how well you do.

#3 – It’s easy

Applying this lotion – which you can do in place of your regular moisturizer – requires almost minimal effort, giving you maximum bang for your buck. This bottle has a shelf life of two years and goes a long way toward supplementing your dietary magnesium intake.

Works great on achy joints
I’ve been taking ReMag for a year in water everyday. Also use it in a roll-on bottle for aching in my lower back and hands. After 2 weeks I’ve switched to this lotion. Fabulous! Also use it on my face daily and mild breakouts from gluten have all but disappeared. Will be taking a break from mag in water as the lotion appears to respond quicker to

my problems. Thank you Dr. Dean for another great product!

ReMag Lotion testimonial:

OMG I never write reviews but the ReMag Lotion you created is off the charts for me.  I have low magnesium levels and have bought tons of magnesium oil and will not take the time to put it on my skin.  The reason is that it is so oily and I don’t want to spend time waiting 20 minutes to absorb into my skin and then washing it off.  Your ReMag lotion has solved this huge issue for me.  The moment I opened the package I tested it on my legs and it absorbed so smoothly without any oily feeling and I felt relaxed right away.  It’s been two days and each morning I get up I smooth it on my legs, arms, and belly and I do the same 5 minutes before bedtime.  Getting into the habit of using this lotion was so easy and it is truly a miracle product.  I am hooked for life and so far, I am building my magnesium levels up on a daily basis doing it in a way I actually look forward to.  WOW is the one word to describe the ReMag lotion.  Please keep creating wonderful, useful and delightful products to increase health and well-being.  I am Loyal for Life!!  Thank you so much Dr. Carolyn Dean. You can use this as a testimonial if you’d like.  Please do!!   Best, Amy.

Love Your Heart? Love Your Magnesium!

Thank you Dr. Dean for more helpful tips!

Magnesium is a dietary mineral with a wide array of biological activities in the body. Magnesium participates in numerous life-essential processes that occur both inside and outside cells. Magnesium deficiency impacts normal physiologic function on many levels. Adequate magnesium is a fundamental requirement for optimum function of the cardiovascular system, the nervous system, and skeletal muscle, as well as the uterus and GI tract. Magnesium deficiency can affect health of the heart, bones and blood vessels and alter blood sugar balance.

Magnesium deficiency plays a critical role in the development of cardiovascular disease; magnesium is needed within the cells for the production of energy, which is mission critical for our heart muscles.

Magnesium and Metabolic Energy

Magnesium works as a “co-factor” for over 800 enzymatic reactions in the body. Metabolism uses a phosphate-containing molecule called “ATP” as its energy source. Magnesium is required for all reactions involving ATP.11 ATP supplies the energy for physical activity, by releasing energy stored in “phosphate bonds”.

Magnesium and Muscle Function

Skeletal and heart muscle use up large amounts of ATP. The energy for muscle contraction is released when one of ATP’s phosphate bonds is broken, in a reaction that produces ADP. Phosphate is added back to ADP, re-forming ATP. ATP also powers the cellular “calcium pump” which allows muscle cells to relax. Because it participates in these ATP-controlled processes, magnesium is vitally important for muscle contraction and relaxation. By controlling the flow of sodium, potassium, and calcium in and out of cells, magnesium regulates the function of nerves as well as muscles.

Magnesium and Heart Function

Magnesium’s importance for heart health is widely recognized. The heart is the only muscle in the body that generates its own electrical impulses. Through its influence on the heart’s electrical conduction system, magnesium is essential for maintenance of a smooth, regular heartbeat. Magnesium appears to help the heart resist the effects of systemic stress. Magnesium deficiency aggravates cardiac damage due to acute systemic stress (such as caused by infection or trauma), while magnesium supplementation protects the heart against stress. This has been found true even in the absence of an actual magnesium deficit in the body.

Did You Know?

The average adult body contains anywhere from about 21 to 28 grams of magnesium. Approximately 60 percent of the body’s magnesium supply is stored in bone. Soft tissue, such as skeletal muscle, contains 38%, leaving only about 1 to 2% of the total body magnesium content in blood plasma and red blood cells.
